I have 2000 chevy blazer and it's stopped blowing hot air. I have back flushed the heater core and the water seems to flow fine but after a day or two it doesn't want to flow back into the heater core


Assuming that you have the proper amount of coolent added, check where your heater hoses connect to the engine block for rust and corrossion, this is a common area to clog up, preventing coolent flow from circulating through your heater core. If ok, check for a thermostat that is stuck open. Sounds to me your "backflushing" has moved a plug of corrossion and rust deeper into the engine, and over a short time, it has moved back up to reclog your heater port.

Have a 2000 chevy cavalier. new water pump, new t-stat, new head gasket , new coolant, still running hot


Two ideas.

1. Try a new radiator reservoir cap (trust me, it is very important in holding pressure which keeps the coolant from boiling out).

2. This one you will need an entire weekend to spend on this. You need to remove the thermostat and replace the thermostat housing. pull one of the radiator hoses and attach a garden hose with good pressure. It needs to flush for at least 20 minutes. Then switch directions and flush water where was coming out. Then put it back together and drive until it gets hot. Allow it to cool for 45mins (to prevent engine from cracking due to rapid cooling) and repeat until no crud comes out when flushing.

My car is overheating. What are the causes of this problem


Falty Thermostat, Not enough coolent in vehicle, Plugged radiator. Has the coolent been flushed? They use Dexcool in the gm vehicles and it is known to gum up the system if proper flushing intervals have not been followed. Long life coolent lasts for 5yrs but should be changed every 3yrs.

Coolent system fault symbol Audi A6

It could be that the thermostat is stuck in the open position thus providing maximum coolant flow through the engine when the engine is still cold, ie from a cold start. (The thermo should close when the engine is stopped and cold and it opens up once the coolant temp increases and the engine has been running for a few minutes.) Once the engine is hot maximum coolant flow between engine and radiator is normal.

Do you also find that your heater takes a while to provide warm air to the cabin in winter when you notice this condition?

If you do not know when the thermostat was last changed then I would suggest you change it. ( If it malfunctions and sticks in the closed position you will really have a problem). The radiator/engine coolant could no doubt do with a flush and change in any event as it should be done every 2 years. If you don't know when it was last done - do it. Cooling systems tend to be a neglected part of essential vehicle maintenance.

Engine overheat


Check the coolent in the 97 cavalier it takes the orange coolent not the green stuff. If you do have green coolent in it you will have to flush the radiator a few times before adding the new coolent.

Smelling antifreeze from the coolent A !
Definitely a leak!
Hopefully not a head gasket leak!
Try warming it up without any accessories on until it gets good and hot, pop the hood and look all around!
